When 9 be-Av falls on Shabbos, it is moved to the following Sunday.

Are there any restrictions on Shabbos because of 9 be-Av (maybe tashmish is forbidden)?

This is really two separate questions. Per suggestions there, I'm splitting off the havdala question to judaism.stackexchange.com/q/18101. This leaves only the restrictions-on-Shabas question here. I'm editing answers accordingly. – msh210 Jul 27 '12 at 17:58
Also calendrically related: judaism.stackexchange.com/q/17883 – msh210 Jul 27 '12 at 19:02
Also important: the fast begins approximately one hour before Shabbos ends. – Daniel Jul 27 '12 at 19:13

Whether or not tashmish and other private acts of mourning remain forbidden on Shabbat Tisha b'Av is a difference of opinion between the Mechaber and the Rama in Shulchan Aruch OC 554:19 with the Mechaber permitting and the Rama forbidding. Some Achronim debate whether Ashkenazim can rely on the Mechaber in certain pressing circumstances so please CYLOR for a final ruling.

Also taking pleasure walks and visting friends I think should also not be done. – sam Jul 27 '12 at 18:21
